Professional Detox Program

Over the past few years, medical professionals across the country have started to realize how dangerous some prescription painkillers are. Some drugs, known as opiates, are effective at reducing pain, but they are also highly addictive. While patients may start taking them as a way to prevent pain, they can quickly develop a dependency that isn’t healthy mentally or physically.  

At Sunshine Behavioral Health, we offer a professional detox program for people who are dependent on opiates, heroin, or other painkillers.  

Keep reading to learn more about what happens during a detox and who it might be right for. 

What Happens During a Medical Detox?

A professional detox program will allow patients to undergo the symptoms of withdrawal in a safe and controlled environment. We keep medical staff on hand to help with the physical and emotional symptoms of the detox. During this time, your body craves the drugs and will react physically to the lack of opiates in your system. This may be quite painful and difficult for some people to face.  

Once your body starts to recover from the detox, our staff will work to give you the tools you need to prevent a relapse. We provide therapy in a group and individual setting and educate patients on the cause of their addiction and the challenges ahead. We want to prepare you for the future to reduce the chances that you will turn to addictive pain pills once you leave our care.  

Our professional detox program takes work, but it is an important step forward in your physical and mental health.  

Who Is a Professional Detox Program For?

There is no single type of person who needs a detox program. People who become addicted to drugs come from all walks of life, from all genders, ages, and backgrounds. If you were prescribed narcotic drugs like Codeine, Morphine, and Fentanyl, or if you have developed a reliance on over-the-counter (OTC) pain medication, then you may need to seek out a medical detox.  

These drugs are made to be addicting. Giving up the pain medication on your own is difficult for more people, if not completely impossible. We offer our professional detox program to whoever needs it. 

Learn About the Detox Program at Sunshine Behavioral Medicine

At Sunshine Behavioral Medicine, we are a designated treatment center for opiate dependence with the use of Suboxone. We use office-based treatment (because of the ease of patient care and lower costs) to help patients reduce their dependence on opioids and other addictions. Our program prioritizes the privacy of patients while creating a convenient environment that minimizes work loss.  

Our treatment program consists of an assessment, medical detoxification, individual and group therapy, and patient education on addiction and the support groups available to them. We consider the patient’s journey during their detoxification and in the months beyond.
